Description: Muhammad Rashid Rida is among the most influential Muslim thinkers of theodern period and yet, until now, his writings on religious reform haveemained unpublished in English. In this flagship English edition, esteemedcademic Simon A. Wood rights this wrong by translating and analysing one ofis most important works, "The Criticisms of the Christians and the Argumentsf Islam". Responding to arguments made in the Victorian period that Islam isirrational' or 'inferior to Christianity' and that the unification ofeligious and political power is a 'barrier to progress', Rida sought toefend Islam and often charged Christianity of its own brand of irrationality.ood analyses these arguments and contends that Rida's work cannot beeparated from the period of colonial humiliation from which it originated.e also takes on the traditional accusation that Rida was a fundamentalistnd argues that he was in fact distinctly modernist.
